Great Vest Construction and we Have a WINNER


***Thank  you ALL for your caring comments regarding Rozzy's passing.  It means so much.  We are having those waves of grief on and off today.   The sun is shining and I know she is peaceful and happy with Huck.   I could not bear leaving the house knowing she fell behind the kitchen radiator last week and was hysterical.  I was so afraid it would happen again and I wouldn't be home. 
So many things said it was time, but it was still awful,  You KNOW!

***
I was at Three Bags Full taking photos for their blog and met a woman named Babette. She was wearing this vest that she knit. 
I love the construction.  The sides are buttoned.  I think I could knit this!  She is going to look for the pattern name for me. 

****
In FUN contest news, Number generator picked 20 which belonged to Donna from Quiet Life!  
Hooray. Donna I will get the yarn and cards to you next week.!
You all know that Donna and I became real/pretend friends years ago.  It was fair and square though, I assure you. 

****
My plan today is to nap.
I didnt sleep well and am pooped.
THEN 
I am going to start a new shawl knit and finish my cowl. 
I can't wait to show you both. 

*** Happy Spring Forward Weekend. 
It feels warm and springlike outside despite all the snow remaining. 
We are ecstatic for 40s!

Congratulations to Donna!

Interesting vest. I hope you'll share the pattern name/designer when you get it.

That vest looks like an easy one to figure out on your own. Can't wait to see what shawl you're making. I have a shawl to crochet next on my list with my big skein of natural white alpaca. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

You are still in my thoughts as I know you are very sad. New projects help I think.

That is a very unusual construction for the vest.

It will take a while before you feel right again -- but you will!

Just as the weather is getting nicer around here is when I get sick.
